You either have to run new wires for your switch or put the switch on it.

I may go home hungry, but not tired and hungry.

I'm guessing you're in the UK or similar. You may want to include that in your profile.

If you want a wall mounted switch, you'll have to run a cable from the light box to a wall box and switch.

I found a site that seems to be useful to our UK friends. I believe they have a forum also.
